It's Butterfly count week where you record butterflies to the society. This is a special one. I shall try and record a few of what I see this week. Not many so far.

We had another one fly in today, unfortunately it had a damaged wing, but it was coping quite well!!
We get more in the conservatory than actually in the garden.......
